Does tsnider stand for Todd Snider? If so, you're great (you Peace Queer and friend of Kevn K.)

Do you think the real Todd Snider would soak up the mandatory minus ten points coolness hit just to slum it with the losers and deadbeats milling aimlessly about this place? Yeah, I can see it has a certain allure...

Have you been keeping track? I'd like to know, in all seriousness, how many "new handles" have you stimulated from our resident bottom dwelling butt muncher? It's a great many, I am sure, and the degree to which one is occupied dreaming up new names, new emails, registering, and so on and so forth, well, I think it safe to say, is time NOT spent doing less productive things. And for that service, you no doubt deserve an award. On the other hand, I seem to have been completely ignored by the BDBM of late, and yet, strangely, it's not clear to me whether I should be feeling the snub, or reveling in it...

Beautiful weather out here my friend...below average highs for some time now. The toads are calling and I saw dozens of this one out last night:

Its really kind of sad that after being away from here for so long that the same diatribe drivel still exists. Wasn't there a way that the admins could track the guilty parties IP address and just make them go away. Freedom of speech is one thing but really, what the point of being so useless. Peace folks.

Jody I don’t know how often you feel compelled to check out what is posted here. Myself I am addicted. I know you love the music - a fact I truly believe to be a given amongst us. Who cares what year sounds best – let’s talk about it in a civilized and non confrontational way. Many of us have something to share no matter if we are just turning on to it ( I envy those ‘juniors’ in a big way ) , or old-timers who saw them way back in the day with Pigpen, or the many like me who came aboard during the oft maligned eighties, etc….

This ‘same diatribe drivel’ you mention bothers me too, but we can do one thing to blow it away – keep talking the good talk. There is much to impart. We can listen to the archived recordings and we can bitch all we want. But we are truly blessed. That is forever beyond dispute.

A short small For Instance – there are many who dislike Brent – but we can appreciate their impute because they are one of Us. peace, Dan

Nicely put Vapors. I agree that differences are what make conversations interesting (70's vs 90's, Brent/Donna, yadi yadi)I tried to persuade others here way back to simply ignore the few malcontents and don't even acknowledge their posts with responses or just start another thread. Its hard though I know. Oh well, it is just an internet forum right?

You can easily hide your IP & MAC addresses by going through a proxy server. They are plentiful and many are free.

Hey JC--actually, it's been pretty darn good around here for quite a few months; I think largely because there are too many of "us" for it to really matter, and if anything, the times folks do slip up and "feed them", it ends up being amusing, or easily ignored if you prefer. I stay clear, generally, but have no problem either way as I just don't see there really being a need to have rules of any kind (complete reversal of my original stance here!!) once we reached a civilized critical mass.

And by no means was I suggesting Rob do ANYTHING different; ie, I just think it's a sign of the Troll's fear and loathing of Rob that he has assumed so many names to tack on some meaningless drivel to one or another of Rob's posts...I find it almost better than TV.

I think a careful reading of the archived posts will reveal that I do not get 'picked on' - rather I prod and provoke and elicit the predictably unimaginative and semi-literate response from Pavlov's Tito. Everyone should have a hobby.

And if you wanted to pick a poster to have a "war of words" with, why on earth would you be dumb enough to select Rob? Hell, we're best friends (quaint, eh?) and I lose every time I try...not a smart choice.

"it's been pretty darn good around here for quite a few months" Hey, he said it and it in fact is very true. He knows, and I trust you don't doubt it.

You lost me, and just when it made a diffeerence. Maybe I am up too late. Why not right now - Make A Change.?

Edit – quite likely lost all through my own devices. Sorry. Hopefully the return you speak of refers to ‘all you find the time to do.’

Not yet! After a small taste I’d say it still needs to simmer a bit longer.
We must keep stirring – thanks for the vigilant help. We don’t want it to scorch after all.

Well, I appreciate what you're saying...it's been a while since I posted a post "while up too late" (but I did send Rob and elb an email while drunk...then I stopped drinking...not that there's any relationship). Anyhow, it's funny, but right now, other than a couple of them, I can't even see all the "bad posts" folks are upset with!

Jody , with respect , I could not disagree with you more . We are lucky to have this forum were speech is not censored . The sharp elbows as well as the bile , come with the warm fuzzies and Eureka moments . Outside of breaking the law ( CR , child p. ), I would hope that no speech here is regulated .

Jody , this just came up in texts . Someone was concerned with antisemitism in the German section .

Rule two:
People who pride themselves on telling it like it is will WITHOUT EXCEPTION absolutely hate it when you try to do the same.

Rule 3 is a simple invitation to self examination, to opening ourselves to the possibility that our most cherished beliefs may not in fact be the unassailable certainties we fondly imagine them to be.




Or it could just be a joke.
